BLUBOO Edge vs Elephone S7: Battle of the Curves
Chinese device makers, Bluboo and Elephone both have smartphones which took their inspirations from the hugely popular and successful Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. The Bluboo Edge and Elephone S7 both use a dual curved screen design and equipped with a familiar front placed fingerprint sensor.
Unsuprisingly, the duo sports a 5.5-inch display, rear 13MP camera and boot Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. While both device use a somewhat familiar design (remember the Galaxy S7 Edge), not all the specs are the same. Let’s take a look at the main specifications:

Obviously, the Elephone S7 is generally superior to the Bluboo Edge and the pricing reflects this.
